Our favorite question. Often people think we have lost our minds or we are spuriously secretive, once they hear the answer. Well, neither.
Until few years back, Immigration visa fee were straight forward- one application, one fee, increase and changes once a year in July. Our fees bank than, was the same- one simple fee.
Since than much had changed, but let me explain from the beginning.
There are two main components you must consider when applying for visa: Disbursements and Fees
Disbursement is all paid by a solicitor to a third party and then claimed back from the client.
Deepens on a visa type, you may expect following disbursements:
- Visa fee paid to Immigration Department

- Nomination and Sponsorship Fee
- and much more
Fee section is what you pay as a service for Agent work.
- It can be hourly fee
- Lump sum fee
- Fee for part of work being done or all
- Fee for additional services required by you etc
As Registered Migration Agents are closely monitored in Australia, when you decide to use services of Registered Agency you may expect fees being somewhere between brackets suggested by Immigration Department, which are considered Standard Market Fee.- you can read more about Immigration Agent Visa Fees Advice
Those may vary based on agent experience, location, qualifications etc
Prices we publish are as close to what we can offer you as possible. Those are a usual brackets.

IN OUR WORDS WHAT IS IMPORTANT
Student visa may be little tricky to obtain as Australian Immigration Department is considering it as a entry visa with permission to work for many people. So once you are granted student visa, you have right to stay and work in Australia, you may apply for work visa, skilled visa and you may not leave Australia for many years.
This is why your personal circumstances will have a great impact on how easy or difficult it will be for you to apply. There are many various factors such: your age, work and education history, family status, past migration and travel history, financial situation and school you have chosen.

This comment should appear here a long time ago …. and there are really no words that would express my gratitude for help in our very complicated matter.
In particular, our greatest thank you to Piotr, who during a casual chat on Skype easily picked up the mistake of our previous agent, who could have caused that our whole family would be threatened back to the country …. as it turned out it was a very complicated matter and we had to act immediately.
Everyone working here are really friendly and helpful. They helped me get through the stressful time applying for my de facto visa with success. I recommend these guys!
